what have we been up to?

making these little yummies! with valentines day just around the corner we were planning on making these "cakeball cupcakes" as treats for teachers and grandparents.... well, since we've got 12.5 inches of snow here in DALLAS that isn't the plan anymore. Now they're here for the eating. Sorry grandparents and teachers... maybe next time you'll get your intended valentines.

These were really easy and fun to make.

How to do it:

Just bake a cake as per the directions. Let it cool completely and then crumble it into a fine fluffy mixture. (we did red velvet and devils food)

Then take one can of frosting, we used chocolate, and mix the two around together.

Then go to michaels and get the Welton's candy trays for the "peanut buttercup" tray. Fill it with a little bit of the "weltons" melting chocolate and then place your little rolled cake ball (about the size of a melon ball from a scooper) into the chocolate and let it cool.

Then is two separate bowls melt different colors of melting chocolate for variety. We used red and pink for valentines, and then turn it upside down and give your cupcake a little dip.

Then finish off with sprinkles and a m&m!!!
